   § 45-57-3  Annual and special meetings

– Voting. –

(a) The district will hold an annual meeting during the month of October in

every year.

   (b) Special meetings of the district shall be called by the

secretary upon order of the board of directors or upon written application of

at least fifteen (15) electors; and whenever the subject of ordering an

assessment is to be acted on at any special meeting, the assessment must be

mentioned in the notice. It is the duty of the secretary to fix a suitable

place for the holding of all meetings and to give notice of each meeting, both

annual and special, by posting a notice in at least one public place within the

town of Tiverton and mailing or hand delivering the notice to each elector in

the district, at least ten (10) days before the meeting, and the notice will

contain a statement of the time and place when and where the meeting will be

held. One notice may be mailed or hand delivered where more than one elector

resides, addressed to all electors there residing. It is the duty of the

secretary of the district to maintain and correct the voting list on a regular

basis, using ownership records of the town of Tiverton.

   (c) No vote, except upon an adjournment, or in the annual

election of officers, may be taken at any meeting of the district unless at

least fifteen (15) electors are present at the meeting. On demand of at least

one fifth (1/5) of the qualified electors of the district present at any

meeting for a ballot on any question pending at the meeting, the ballot will be

allowed; and all votes except on motion to adjourn, or on amendment to any

pending proposition, will be required by the secretary to be so taken, the

votes affirmative and negative may be counted by the secretary, and the result

entered by the secretary on the minutes of the meeting.
